Man’s death in February ruled a homicide after altercation at St. Mary Corwin Medical Center


PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- The Pueblo Police Department has opened up a homicide investigation after a 36-year-old man died following an altercation at St. Mary Corwin Medical Center earlier this year.

The incident happened on Feb. 10 when Mathew Haskel Jones arrived at St. Mary Corwin Medical Center. Pueblo police say Jones had been "involved in a physical altercation with hospital security staff prior to the arrival of Pueblo police officers."

Jones was taken to a Colorado Springs hospital after the disturbance, but he died a little over a week later on Feb. 18. Pueblo police say they began investigating as a suspicious death at the time.

Jones' cause of death wasn't released, and it's not yet clear what led to the disturbance at St. Mary Corwin Medical Center.

According to an update Friday from PPD, Jones' death was ruled a homicide after an autopsy was completed. PPD says they're now looking into the homicide details and added that the investigation is "active and ongoing."

We're working on getting more information about the case. Check back for updates.

  1. Altercation with hospital staff. Let’s investigate a homicide. Perhaps if you would be so quick to call police shootings homicides fewer people would get shot.
